KOLBUS wins the German Packagang Award 2021 for BOX LINE Wrapper. Laminating boxes with high-quality decorative materials is not a new process, but KOLBUS has implemented it in a format-flexible way. Format parts have been substituted and thus set-up times reduced or eliminated. The adjustable work elements arranged in a modified process sequence make it possible to process a very large format range with a single machine without changing format parts, thus offering flexibility in different job structures.

KOLBUS UK Ltd provides machine sales, spares and technical support for packaging specialists, sheet plants, bookbinders, trade finishers, conventional and digital printers, throughout the UK and Ireland.

The comprehensive product range covers casemakers and associated equipment, board cutters and blockers, luxury packaging machinery, corrugated box production, palletisers and web folders manufactured by KOLBUS GmbH and KOLBUS AutoBox, Aster book sewing machines and Universe Digitaline finishing equipment from Meccanotecnica and mailing systems by Hugo Beck.
